GERMANY • With the motto “We colour the future”, the printing ink manufacturer Siegwerk will be demonstrating its products and services portfolio at drupa to address current and future industry trends. Visitors can get in touch with the ink manufacturers for packaging printing at Booth A58 in Hall 3. Siegwerk serves customer segments like flexible packaging, tobacco, labels, conventional sheet-fed, paper and board, and others.
As a member of the German Paint and Printing Ink Association (VdL), Siegwerk will support the association’s “Link to ink – The combined know how” program during drupa with presentations about packaging safety and general ink composition. More information can be found at Booth 3B16 in Hall 3.
Siegwerk is today expanding its business into the inkjet ink market, initially for labels and secondly for packaging applications. The company extended its research and development capabilities and built a dedicated inkjet laboratory at its technical centre in France.
Siegwerk addresses what it says is the growing demand for low migration products for food packaging applications with Sicura Nutriflex LEDTec, a low migration LED-UV flexo series for food and pharma packaging. Further expansion of applications will enable printers to use LED-UV inks for the full range of products. The company expects a volume switch from conventional UV to low migration UV inks in the printing market for this year.
With the water-based ink system Unirics, which contains renewable hybrid acrylic resin partially based on plants, Siegwerk offers a sustainable ink series for paper and board applications that is implemented in the market. In addition, the company just launched Unixyl as a new water-based flexo series formulated with renewable, forestry-based components for paper and board applications.
